Welcome to LOA2018 and a new bi-annual conference dedicated to licensing and open access questions arranged by the National Library of Sweden. The focus of LOA2018 will be on the transition from a subscription-based to an open access publishing system. The morning sessions will be held in English.
The National Library of Sweden (NLS) shall promote Swedish research quality and the advancement of a democratic society by providing source material and an efficient research infrastructure. This is evident from an updated ordinance to the NLS after a decision by the Swedish Government.
